The city of Rifle announced the winners of the City Manager’s Scavenger Hunt for 11 patriotically painted rocks, painted by Rifle Police Officer Jose Valadez, which were hidden in businesses around town. Kathy Pototsky, Public Information Officer with the city of Rifle, said several people found all 11 rocks. 

“The exciting thing was that we had several families who did it as a family activity, which is exactly what we hoped to inspire, getting people out visiting our local businesses and having fun,” Pototsky said. “Jose was excited to see the pictures people sent. He doesn’t often get to see people with his art.”
